Men’s skin contains more collagen and elastin, making it 25% thicker than women’s. Male skin tends to be, on balance, rougher and oilier - so a good moisturiser for men is necessary to prevent skin from getting dry and dull.
Shaving can irritate the skin causing redness, so a good men’s moisturiser can keep skin conditioned and healthy post-shave. It is important to know your skin type when it comes to selecting a moisturiser. For instance, oil-based men’s face moisturisers work best for dry skin and sensitive skin benefits from calming ingredients such as aloe vera or chamomile.
There is a large selection of men’s moisturisers out there - some have extra ingredients that offer other benefits, such as reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Knowing your skin type is the first step to knowing which moisturiser for men is suitable for you. Some moisturisers don’t contain SPF, which means you should use them separately to protect your skin from the sun.
Alongside your moisturiser, make sure to keep skin clean and exfoliate a few times a week to get rid of dead skin cells. Luckily, we have a large range of moisturisers for men here at Beyond Beautiful and you can choose from expert skincare brands such as Guinot, Bioderma and Skin Doctors.
